Standard Webhooks

Came across an effort to standardize webhooks. I love it.

Having a spec for webhooks will decrease implementation time, both for sending and receiving.

It'll enable innovation as services can be connected together easily.

And it'll increase security. I've seen many implementations that don't check the signature, for example. And I learned about server side request forgery (SSRF), which I hadn't thought about!

I hope this catches on and does become the standard!
